Cell Phones in Mexico

I accidentally erased my original post about using your present cell phone while in Mexico. If anyone has any personal experience with this, please let us know.


Here’s a comment on my original post:

Verizon now offers a North American plan which for $120 a month for 2 phones gives you 1500 minutes anywhere in Canada, U.S, and Mexico. Mexican coverage is good enough to have about 100 towns with service in the state of Nayarit.

    Any idea if this plan works in San Miguel de Allende? I spoke to Verizon here today (in CT) and they were a little dumbfounded by the whole thing :)


    mexigirl: I don’t know if the plan will work in SMA but if it actually works as advertised, for all of Mexico, then I assume that, yes, it will work in San Miguel. But… as the saying goes, ‘ya never know! I don’t have time right now to chase this down but if you Goggle around the web a bit I think you’ll find a more definitive answer. Also, try online forums and San Miguel websites.

    We are relocating to Puerto Vallarta in about a month and have purchased the Verizon North American plan. For two lines and 700 minutes (1000 night and weekend), it is $90 a month. We have friends in the Los Muertos area who say it works great there, but I have heard there is no signal in Nuevo Vallarta. Does anyone know about coverage in Bucerias or La Cruz? Thanks – Karen

    Forget Verizon in Puerto Escondido (and probably other places on the southern coast).  AT&T works here.

    Everybody I know has two cell phones, one for the states and one for Mexico. It’s so easy to pick up a cell phone in Mexico, often with enough minutes to defray the cost of purchase.
    AND, the one I got also picks up FM radio!

    You can buy refill minutes in the checkout lane of almost any big grocery store, or in Oxxo
